Connectopod Special Edition -DACA

Our first day back in session was Tuesday. DACA was also rescinded that day. Our team of reporters ranging in age from 8-13 is witnessing the stress on the socal immigrant community up close. Part of our mission is to provide a forum for kids to work out all the crazy events happening in the world and give them a platform to voice their point of view. They learn that their point of view is important and that facts are building blocks to make their case. Or even (gasp!) develop a new point of view based on what they find!
The team got to work and researched , wrote and edited their segments . You can't keep a good reporter down! We barely finished before it was time to go. I added an intro later, because of time constraints. Usually the reporters do it.
I chose this picture for the post because this is how it works at Connectopod. When you are busy leading, you feel better. I know that these first generation Americans give this first generation American hope.
